Choose your art

The Academy studios allow Performers to find and develop their inner creative selves.

Why choose the academy

The Academy of Performance Arts provides a solid educational platform for Performers of all ages to learn and appreciate the Arts.


Acting is a great way to demonstrate expression. Acting builds self-confidence and motivation. Acting forms character and inner strength when a Performer is able to step outside their comfort zone.


Singing instruction allows the body to respond instantly to sounds the ear hears and the mind interprets; then models these into lyrical expression for Vocal delivery.


Enhancing self esteem and promoting positive self discovery through Art platforms. Encouraging expressive design with an emphasis on demonstrating colorful bodies of work.


Providing help for difficult homework with caring voices of guidance. Computer stations are available for work needing any reference materials or programs to help complete assignments.


Techniques to acquire coordination of fingers, hands, arms, lip, cheek and facial muscles then shaping these movements to create blended instrumental sounds.


Dance is innate in any Performer and existed before words were formed. Body movement expresses feeling and emotions and when structured and performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes Dance.
